"Who'd Arrest My Chimp"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics


In the kitchen and breakfast nook, I call his name
He isn't in the laundry room
Took a dip in the swimming pool? I search in vain
Water is not his medium

Through the window and in the street, I see his face
Behind his favorite kazoo
In the grip of his hairy hand, a brush in place
Painting my neighbor's Jaguar blue

Who doo-doo doo-dah
Who doo-doo doo-dah
Who doo-doo-doo-dah
Who doo-doo doo-dah

Who'd arrest my chimp?

Over fences and trellises, he flies around
Looking for things to mess with
Eating Mrs. Wu's garden crops right to the ground
Carrots, he beats his chest with

In the middle of wet cement, new patio
A fresco of monkey footprints
Parson Smith and wife Hillary, splattered at door
Seemingly quite averse to chimps

(opera singer voice)
"There is a chimp at our back door
Our brand new patio's no more
And now he's squirting auto grease
Someone please contact the police"
(/opera singer voice)

Who doo-doo doo-dah
Who doo-doo doo-dah
Who doo-doo-doo-dah
Who doo-doo doo-dah

Who'd arrest my chimp?

[GUITAR SOLO]

Que le chimp vous policia, messieurs et dames
Arrestez bien, je auto grease
See the mess that my chimp is in, I'm in a rage
At fascist anti-chimp police

Now I'm down at the station house, arranging bail
While Binky smashes everything
Claiming police brutality, I scream and wail
I'll have to pawn my bling-bling

Yeah-eah-eah

(crowd chant)
"The world is one big septic tank
Hatred of chimps, we have to thank
The cops who collar helpless apes
Should all be forced to watch blank tapes"
(/crowd chant)

Call Maynard and get Zed
Wake up the Gimp

Who'd arrest my chimp?

Never heard the OS before, but this was a very interesting story and I love the title switch. Nice work!
Porfle Popnecker - February 12, 2012 - Report this comment
Glad you liked it! The OS is really one of Thomas Dolby's more beautiful songs.

As long as you got the monkey off your back with this song. Funny and odd song, and nice to learn about a Thomas Dolby song other than his one hit wonder.
Porfle Popnecker - February 15, 2012 - Report this comment
Yeah, that novelty hit was sort of a curse for him since there's so much more to his music than that.
Peter Andersson - February 25, 2012 - Report this comment
Except for being too long the OS sounds kinda like the minimalist side of Flash And The Pan - and that crashes nicely with your ape-gone-wild theme in this one.
Porfle Popnecker - February 25, 2012 - Report this comment
I don't know Flash and the Pan but that sounds good to me!

WAKE UP THE GIMP! Best 2nd to last line ever. Impressive subins throught this song, Porf. I don't think Thomas Dolby songs lend themselves well to parody, but this one works for me. Funny subs and many clever lines 'laundry room/medium' also stood out.

I'm also a fan of the Pulp Fiction reference in here. Such a fantastic movie. Who's motorcycle is this? It's a chopper baby. Who's chopper is this? It's Zed's. Who's Zed? Zed's dead baby, Zed's dead. I didn't know that Thomas Dolby did a song that wasn't "She Blinded Me With Science" to tell you the truth it was elevator music at it's most elevator. Still this was a pretty entertaining parody.

(SOTM) Never heard the OS before, and could go without hearing it again. It was like musical tofu, it does the job, but isn't quite satisfying. Your parody however, was. It hit the spot!

Thanks for the comments!

(SOTM) MONKEYS! Everything's better with them, so I understand why the singer is so anxious to get his simian pal back. Interesting OS, soothing yet funky at the same time, you made great use of it. 555!

Glad you liked the parody and the OS!
